    Decided I cant wait for the HTC desire to land, and need my Android fix now! My N96 is just clunky compared to the wife's Samsung Galaxy spica.

    So, whilst trawling fleabay, what is a good price, and what is over priced in the UK?

    Once the Desire lands and I upgrade, obv I'll be selling both on, or trading into Mazuma etc.

    They seem to hold their price well, barring the milestone (which I haven't seen anywhere) the Hero is still the best Android phone available in the UK. That'll all change come April though

    I think I may venture down the same path as you, assuming the Desire is rootable ;)

    yeah i have been watching the prices on ebay for quite a long time, 200 pounds used is the 'norm' but you get the odd phone below that, but they go very fast
    i got my hero for 175 - mint condition - boxed because isaw the listing a few mins after it was posted on ebay:)

    Yeah, all my watched have gone over my budget quite dramatically :(

    Looks like I'm stuck with the N96 until the desire lands.
